Coffee Shop

Try a MEM loose-leaf tea served in a cast-iron teapot, paired with the “hummer” breakfast sandwich (hummus, alfalfa sprouts, tomato, lettuce, and red onion) and you’ve got yourself a healthy and filling breakfast for under $10. Other popular menu items include the Otom breakfast sandwich (a BLT with eggs, cheddar cheese, lettuce, and tomato) and a hummus and avocado sandwich. The walls serve as gallery space for the work of local artists, which is available for purchase.

The Sangria is a great combination of sweetness that offsets the savory, flavorful food! It's a great place for dates or a girls night with friends (that seems to be the majority of their clientele) and has a great, cozy atmosphere. They have a fantastic selection of hot and cold tapas (I highly recommend the moroccan chicken and the setas al jerez (mushrooms in cream sauce). If you're not into tapa”
